Damn Monkeys and 'Kn Apes

Last night Mz DestructoMeg took me to the Lowin Award ceremony for Australian contemporary composers. I feel so... ummm... cultured or summink. We had canapes and drinkies so it's all good! Was good to have some live performances thrown in to the mix.

On the way home we stumbled across the Sydney Good Food festival in Hyde Park. It was funny because you could see that Thai food is so not exotic anymore. All the Thai restaurants represented had very little queue. Things like Japanese and Himalayan fared much better. And nobody wanted the Indian food... We ambled around but nothing seemed to strike me as particularly delicious. Possibly because I could identify most of the restaurants there.

Oh yeah... driving back home I bought the final piece of the puzzle. I now own a gas bottle.

***NEWSFLASH***

As of Saturday, high noon, the BBQ has been "cured". There's a few "features" on how some of the buttons work, and it does smell a bit like burned paint, but it's all ready to go! Now to find my pith helmet....

some of the 'kn apes were quite tasty... especially the chicken wrapped in chorizo and dipped in a creamy sauce... heartdisease be damned!

Pretty good summation of my experiences with those food festivals. It's all over-prices stuff that could be easily found in Newtown for less the price, or at least more convenience.

It's a romantic idea the whole picnic in the park thing, but just doesn't seem to work that way, maybe because everyone thinks it is too??

BBQ! BBQ! BBQ! BBQ!
There was some rhythm there, but it's hard to tell...

Me, some meat, your doorstep.

Consider yourselves warned.

We were thinking about the logistics of it, and it might have to be a breakfast BBQ. Still haven't set fire to the thing yet or seasoned it... but soon I tell you! Soooooon!

I'm gettin' in the rhythm of the BBQ rhythm.

MissKrin: Thanks. It looked so good from afar and maybe the visual effect is a big part of the appeal?
